Unpublished manuscript that compares Helen Kellers story "The Frost King" paragraph by paragraph with Margaret Canby's story "Frost Fairies", showing how similar the texts are. Written 10 years or more after the scandal broke in which Helen Keller was accused of plagerism, this volume argues that Anne Sullivan was lying about her methods, and is a response to writings in support of Sullivan by her husband John Macy.
